We Build Your Case by Proving Who Is at Fault and Liable for Your Car Accident
The act of identifying who has legal responsibility for your car accident can be compared to solving a puzzle. As a result of our training and experience, we know where to look for and how to assemble the pieces to arrive at clear picture of fault and liability.
We obtain copies of the police report filed by the law enforcement officer(s) who showed up at the scene of your accident. This report includes details about whether the other party broke any traffic laws, whether any parties were driving drunk or under the influence, etc. The presumed objectivity of the report makes it a valuable resource in our analysis.
While it is a cliche to say that “a picture paints a thousand words,” evidentiary photographs can indeed be invaluable tools in our research. As indicated, our legal team will visit the accident scene and take photos. We also will gather photos taken by witnesses and by you, if any were taken.
In the appropriate case, we will scout the immediate surrounding area of the accident scene to check for surveillance video cameras. Sometimes (for example) a corner gas station, bank, or store may have had a camera rolling at the time of your accident, and we have at times been successful in discovering such valuable evidence.
In some accident cases, witnesses at the scene of the accident provide their contact information to the injured victim or someone associated with the injured victim. Of course, the police on the scene take statements from anyone who confirms that they saw what happened. These third-party accounts from people who have no vested interest in who wins this case are an excellent source of credible information. Passengers also give strong accounts of the details leading to the accident. We will be sure to include their statements in our analysis as we work to build a compelling case on your behalf.
Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. has been doing this for decades, and we are here to help you today. Call us at 516-932-0400.
We Will Apply the Facts to the Law to Make an Ironclad Case of Liability
The criteria for establishing fault and liability is composed of four simple elements:
- The party had a duty of care to you (to drive safely)
- The party breached that duty (the driver was negligent)
- The party’s breach of duty caused an accident (the driver’s negligence caused the car accident)
- Another party was injured because of the accident (the car crash resulted in injuries to you)
We Will Determine the Value of Your Case to Get You the Compensation You Deserve
We will consult with a broad range of experts to complete the picture of how this accident has impacted you and will continue to affect you. Among the types of experts with whom we will collaborate are:
